Springtime in my front garden

October 12th, 2011 at 02:36 am

I wrote about doing my annual weeding in my front garden

Azaleas were flowering in late winter now all the other are flowering.

All the bulbs, lily and iris that were replanted or left in the soil are now in flower.

Gladys are the same bulbs stock that my father planted 40 years ago.

They are like a weed but no annuals grow in this garden so I let them just grow here you donít need to take them out for next year as we donít have any frost. If you move them the baby bulbs just fall off.

I donít know the right name of these ones but you donít break them up if you want flowers that year. A friend thinned hers out and got one flower this year. I didnít thin my out.

I counted over 23 irises in flower at the same time this morning.

    Ah, beautiful! Red flowers = Hippeastrum (botanical name) or amaryllis (most frequent common name I'm aware of).

    Lovely! Smile
